So this maybe my go to style for the summer, I tried the wash n gos but in 90 degree weather...I can't take my hair all over my head. So I washed my hair and used the Ecostyler pink to set my twist and then rolled them on flexirods. Last night I re-rolled my hair on the flexirods. I have learned that since my hair is thick the less moisture I have on it for a flexirod set the better. Today my hair held a strong curl and I just plan on pin curling it tonight to sleep.
So I know I did a wash in go last year in September but one in the warmer months seemed like it would be the perfect challenge. I had a braid out earlier this week that couldn't hold up in this heat,so I pulled my hair into a high ponytail for a few days. Yesterday I was in desperate need of a good wash so I did just that. I had also picked up the Eco styler gel in Pink for curls and waves and decided to give it a try. Below is my hair at about 60% dry. Last night I pulled it into a pineapple, another thing that I haven't done in years and put a large bonnet on my hair. My hair where protected and I was able to sleep comfortably I might even revisit the satin pillow case. I say all of this because when I first big chopped I wanted the wash and go to work for me but it didn't. But I now think the reason it didn't work was because I didn't know the right gels to use and my nighttime routine was for longer hair. I'm hoping that I can get at least 5 day hair out of this wash and go...if I do this maybe my summer staple.
So often I spend the whole week at work waiting for the weekend and then when it comes around I am camped out on the couch and glued to the tv. Although, it is good to relax and lay around being lazy...sometimes you need to get out and shake a tail feather lol. So every weekend this past month I did just that I was out and having a good time with my friends and enjoying life.
